We all have unique filters through which we see the world, some good, and some bad. If we truly are what we believe we are, then is our life simply a self-fulfilling prophecy? It's important to ask yourself what it is that that holding you back in life. What is it that keeps you from achieving your dreams? We all have preconceived notions of how we believe things will turn out. Many times, these notions, or limiting beliefs as I call them, have been in place since childhood, and they are very difficult to erase, and even more difficult to replace.
Hypnosis, or more specifically hypnotherapy which I like to call it, is a misunderstood art. It is not magic, nor is it really that mysterious. The process of hypnotherapy is simply a way for you to circumvent the conscious mind, which does not like change. The conscious mind is like the gatekeeper, who primary goal is to maintain the status quo, plain and simple. That is why it is so difficult to implement changes using the conscious mind as a tool.
On the other hand, your subconscious mind, which we access through hypnotherapy, is kind of like a plasma screen television where the images get burnt into the screen if they are left on there for too long. Your subconscious mind is programmed from an early age and it never forgings anything. Its main goal is to record and store information, and then play it back to you via your running dialogue. If you are not sure what I mean by this, ask yourself what messages are running through your mind on any given day. Life is difficult for many of us, so many times these messages are not good ones, and they can even be self-defeating. If we are what we think we are, then perhaps we are our own worst enemy, because we are creating our own reality.
Hypnosis, or hypnotherapy, is a great way to slowly get rid ourselves of those self-defeating thoughts that are always in the background, helping you replace them with positive ones. It's a way for us to help you make changes, from the inside out, plain and simple. Much like that plasma screen television, hypnosis allows us to reprogram your mind, replacing those old burnt out images, with new positive ones, setting you up for success, instead of failure.
The subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination, so it believes whatever it is that is being programmed into it. Hypnosis is an amazing incredible way to make changes in your life, because it helps you change your mindset. The mind is an incredible tool, one that is not utilized to its fullest for many of us. Hypnosis works on subtle levels of the mind, allowing us to make changes on deep levels. Many of us take time every day to improve our bodies, and that's admirable. What we do not do on a regular basis is take time to improve our mindset. We are depressed, angry, anxious, stressed out and miserable. But what do we do, the minute we get home? We turn on the news, watch reality television, read the paper or argument with our spouse. All day long, we are bombarded with unhealthy messages, so it's no wonder so many of us have trouble focusing and calming our minds.
The key to successful hypnosis, or successful hypnotherapy, is narrowing down your focus to one specific issue, because the subconscious mind is very childlike, and gets easily overwhelmed. Most habits take about 21 days to change, plain and simple. Repeat something often enough, and you reach a tipping point, which your mind starts to grab hold of.
Many of us expect to struggle, and therefore we do. It's not our fault, because we really do not know any better, because it's what we have been taught from an early age. Hypnosis is not a magic wand that can instantaneously change your life. What it is, is an amazing, beautiful process, one in which you must participate in, by identifying your own specific limiting beliefs. Hypnosis can literally change the way you think about yourself and your life, by helping you change your mindset, from the inside out.
Hypnosis, or rather hypnotherapy, is all about empowering someone by giving them a tool to help them change their life. It's important that we respect hypnosis for the beautiful art that it is. We all have something we wish we could change. We just did not realize how easy it was. Engaging in a regular program of self-improvement, via hypnosis, or hypnotherapy, can literally change your life, 10 suggestions at a time.
